More Flickr Hacking

Over the last two days, between playing Portal and Age of Empires III (both of which are…awesome!), I’ve been doing a little more flickr hacking. This is very closely related to my previous Flickr program where I checked if my pictures were ready to be moved into the next views groups.

This time I wanted to see which of my photos were not in any groups. So in the case that I’ve missed putting a photo into the 25 views groups because it’s a few pages back and I really don’t have time to go back through all of my photos to find the pictures to put into the groups. I tried that once and it was excrutiatingly slow – even slower than figuring out if it was time to graduate my pictures out of the views groups. So here’s the output of my current program:

Flickr Not In Views API Python Program

It’s not looking through all of my stream just yet, I wanted to try it with just 200 pictures, to make sure I had things working well. I have over 2000 photos, so it will take a while to run when I have it fully working.

  1. I forgot to mention that with about 15 minutes more hacking I was able to get it to search through my entire photostream. I have quite a few photos that need to be added into various views groups, most of them 25 views- of course. At least it’s mostly automated for me. q:o)

    Perhaps my next step will be to ask me if I want to add them in and then add it automatically to the various groups. I was thinking of doing this for my regular views program, but since I usually add them into the “Graduation Section” that wouldn’t work as well.

    I’ll post more when I have made some progress.
